Re: Can I keep my toms low on a 22" kick?

It's going to be difficult.

I didn't watch the video, but I am 5'7" and pretty much only want to work with 20" bass drums, partly for this reason, and partly because I like the way the slightly...

Re: Beatbox: friend or foe?

The fact that you already hear beats in your head is GREAT.

Learning a musical instrument for me is always about getting enough skill to play the stuff I hear in my head.

I don't thing there's...

Re: Okay, if all tone comes "from the player's hands"

It is most assuredly not a serious question, more of a smartass rebuttal to that tired comment that seems to come up any time a musician asks on a forum how best to set up their equipment when trying...

Why does the sound engineer point the mics at the drums and amps?

Re: Took a 3 month long break from practicing regularly

For me, a big part of learning drums is letting go of certain parts of my brain. This is what makes it a meditation and spiritual practice for me.

There are etudes that I have been shedding for...

Re: Poll: do you double bass?


My left foot is for the hi hat. I use my hi hat pedal a LOT, and taking my foot off the pedal would feel like playing with one hand tied behind my back.

And what Anon said about timbales....

Re: New to me Acrolite

The magic Acrolite!

I was skeptical for a good long while because while looking for an Acrolite, I had purchased a pitted Supraphonic for $80, figuring it would be a very similar drum.

Re: Shoes with Elastic Bands: Yes or No?

Give your character a pair of black Vans slip-ons and he or she will look authentic.

Me, I play in Converse Slip All-Stars.

Re: Hi hats and air lock, no luck.

Thanks! I was wondering whether you had noticed that part. It was kind of wordy for a web forum.

Re: Help with my technique and mental pulse

I checked out a few Tricot videos and your guy has some amazing technique to be sure. Completely rips on a single pedal.

Used to have problems with it, but I figured out what was going wrong and fixed it.

A few things come to mind.

First, the fact that you can rotate your bottom cymbal and make the problem come...

Re: Leave Me Alone, rant 2

So your preference is for blah gear?

If someone criticizes your gear saying that they had it and it sounded bad, tell them that you are sorry that they couldn't get better results with it.

Re: Weird symptoms before a show

I agree that it sounds like an anxiety reaction.

In the San Francisco Bay Area, pretty much the only surviving dedicated drum shop I can think of is A Drummer's Tradition in San Rafael.
